A Conibear No. 4 trap, apparently set for beaver, holds a non-targeted snapping turtle in its grasp June 14, 2008 in a wetland area in Arbor Vitae, WI. The turtle and trap were taken to the Northwoods Wildlife Center in Minocqua, WI. A wildlife technician there said the turtle had minor abrasions, but otherwise was in good condition. It was released back into the wild.
